Anyone know how setup IP accounting so that

the counter will NOT reset after reaching

4GB in throughput:

C7140>sh ip accounting | i 2625507 113118188 9013383 4224940020


Then the counter immediately resets back

to zero. I think this happens because

it is a 32 bits counter.

Is there anyway I can make it a 64-bits

counter? IOS version is


Anyone? Thanks in advance.

we often recommend using NetFlow instead.

That's exactly what I am getting. How do I

scale this beyond 4294967295?

I also use NetFlow. In fact, I use NetQoS

but that's another topic for another day.
